The French have Cannes, the Italians have Venice, and we've got Tribeca. Each spring, the Tribeca Film Festival transforms downtown Manhattan into a cinema hub — with directors, actors, and movie lovers dropping in from Tinseltown and beyond.
It's guaranteed to be a meeting of brilliant minds — if you're lucky enough to get in. That said, the endless stream of screenings, junkets, and events can get a bit overwhelming. Finding a nearby restaurant to refuel and recharge becomes more of a necessity than ever.
Lucky for us (and other Tribeca dwellers), The New Potato seems to have tapped into our dining needs by rounding up the best 10 restaurants to frequent in the neighborhood. Vetted by tastemakers in entertainment, fashion, and publishing — including our very own EIC — these eateries are not your run-of-the-mill fast-food joints. Whether you're craving a good martini or a hearty slice of cheesecake in between screenings, the classy and delicious picks will have your covered.
